Famille Hanna Farewell

Another great week here in New Cal. Last P-day we went downtown as a district to the WW2 museum which was fun! The lady at the front desk of the museum (who runs it apparently) loves missionaries. As a district, we had a prayer and a mini lesson with her right then and there haha. We left her with a Book of Mormon that we all wrote our testimonies in which was awesome! 

Thursday we had a lesson with the a recent convert family. It was pretty hilarious though because there were workers just outside their house with weed wackers blaring away. We literally had to shout the hymns we sang and practically scream across the tiny table we were sitting at just to hear each other. 

Friday we had a lesson with one of our best investigators! She's working towards getting baptized on March 4th which is right after transfers so we'll see if I'll be here for that. Friday night we had a ward party for the Hanna Family! They left just yesterday back to the States. They have been a huuuge help for missionary work here in the Ducos ward! Huge thank you to them!!

Saturday we went contacting with a ward missionary into areas that we normally don't get to go to. The Ducos area is pretty big and without a car is can be hard to get everywhere so the members are a huge help!

For Church on Sundays now we have two new elders coming: Elder Walton from my MTC district :) and Elder Darche who is from Montreal! That's 8 missionaries total just in the ward of Ducos haha. They don't actually live in our ward boundaries but there is some complications for them to get to there own ward. There is this area of New Cal that has a big problem with tribal violence and such and sometimes the highways get shutdown and they steal peoples cars and burn them...so yeah. President said they can't travel across that area now so they're stuck with us haha.

Monday we had our final farewell.... just Elder Conger and I with the Hanna Family at this suuuper good restaurant owned by members. We all got these massive cheeseburgers that were just about the size of a plate haha. Super good stuff. 

Yesterday it was pouring rain all day. We tried to defend ourselves with umbrellas but to no avail! In the evening we showed up to my first ward counsel soaking wet haha. Good times. Hope everything is going great at home! And that snow at home looks insane! Till next week!

Avec amour,

-Elder Burbank
